The HER-2/neu oncogene encodes a Mr 185,000 transmembrane phosphoglycoprotein which is overexpressed in 25-35% of breast and ovarian neoplasms and portends a poor prognosis. We have studied the feasibility of targeting this oncoprotein, designated p185, with radioiodinated murine monoclonal antibodies (muMABs) 4D5 and 7C2, which recognize distinct epitopes(More)
Evidence is accumulating supporting gender-related differences in the development of colonic carcinomas. Sex steroid hormone receptors are expressed in the colon and interact with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), a gene widely expressed in colonic tissue. Increased EGFR expression is linked with poor prognosis in colon cancer. Within the EGFR gene(More)
High-dose therapy with autologous peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) rescue is widely used for the treatment of malignant disease. CD34 selection of PBSC has been applied as a means of reducing contamination of the graft. Although CD34 selection results in a 2 to 3 log reduction in contaminating tumor cells without significantly delaying engraftment, many(More)
An association between epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling pathway and response of cancer cells to ionizing radiation has been reported. Recently, a polymorphic variant in the EGFR gene that leads to an arginine-to-lysine substitution in the extracellular domain at codon 497 within subdomain IV of EGFR has been identified. The variant EGFR(More)
Estrogen replacement therapy in women has demonstrated a protective effect in the development of colonic carcinomas. Gender-related differences in the development of colonic carcinomas have also been reported. Estrogen receptor beta (ERβ) is expressed in colon carcinomas and has demonstrated prognostic value in colon cancer patients. This study investigated(More)

Gender-related differences in the development of colonic carcinomas have also been reported. Estrogen receptor-β (ERβ) is expressed in colon carcinomas and has shown prognostic value in colon cancer patients. This study investigated an ERβ 3'(More)
